Five ceiling fans plus Central Air/Heat.
The bedrooms are located at one end of the house, away from the living area and kitchen. Each bedroom has a queen bed, a closet, a ceiling fan, a dresser and two windows. One bedroom has a stackable washer/dryer in the closet so storage is somewhat limited.

Very centrally located to Gulfport, St Pete Beach and downtown St Petersburg, with Tampa's activities just 15 minutes further.
Tyn & Marty's is walking distance to the excellent shops and restaurants and only a few minutes from a marina, nature park, fishing pier, library, theater, dolphin-watching cruises, golf, the beach and more!

The place was just as described. Cute, clean, well-stocked. Easy to work with Beth on rental. Enjoyed our time.

Tyn and Marty's Cottage was an ideal base for our career move from the DC metro area to St. Petersburg, FL. The corner lot is spacious yet secluded by mature palms and oaks, with alley access and parking for two cars. It's two blocks away from all the lovely shops and restaurants in Gulfport along Beach Blvd. The interior was clean and spacious with a comfy couch and nice HD TV. We never made use of the grill outside but it would be pleasant to cook out and enjoy the table under the shade of the live oak. Our only constructive comments are that the master bed could be a little more comfortable, and there is no dishwasher, but for a long weekend or week it's fine. Excellent value for money given the location and space.

Really cute cottage just around the corner from the boho town of Gulfport which is just 15 minutes to the beaches. Very clean and comfortable. We requested a thick mattress pad for one of the bedrooms and it was promptly delivered and helped with comfort. I would rent again!

We spent a month in this charming cottage. It was just the right size for us and our two labradors. It is conveniently located near Beach Blvd. which is lined with shops and restaurants, and easy walking to the beach. It's a block to the library and two blocks to the dog park. Gulfport was easy to walk around and ride your bike in. Fort DeSoto beach was great! From this location it was easy to explore the warehouse district and the arts district and the waterfront of St. Petersburg. We really appreciated the keyless lock.

This cottage suits our need and is only a few blocks from our relatives we visited. The rooms are very clean, and the kitchen is so well stocked. We will definitely come back!

Very comfortable small house with yard just a walk away from waterfront, restaurants, and high quality library. Managers were helpful meeting our needs. Loved this place, and Gulfport, a quiet and friendly community with plenty of fun things to do.

My husband I enjoyed the house very much. It was comfortable and very clean. We especially liked that it was so close to all the great shops and restaurants-just a short walk. You have to try the pizza st Siri's!!! Best I ever had.<br/>

The cottage is in a great location within a very short walk to Beach Blvd.where all the funky shops and great restaurants are. The cottage is "tired"and would be so much better with a kitchen and bathroom update. I found the bed in master bedroom very uncomfortable. It was wonderful having a washer and dryer there and lots of information about places to eat and places to see. Beth the property manager was easy to work with and very accommodating.This was our first visit to Gulfport and we loved the area. Many great restaurants on Beach try and take a drive to Fort DeSoto which has an amazing beach! We will be back, hopefully for a longer period of time!

My husband and I rented Tyn & Marty's Cottage all of Nov. & Dec. 2016. Upon our arrival we found this cute home all ready for us, very clean and smartly furnished. Due to medical issues we needed help in unloading the car, Beth arranged to have someone meet us to help unload our car. I am forever grateful. Both bedrooms were roomy and had plenty of storage although the second bedroom closet was used for the washer and dryer. The living room was very spacious and comfortable. We loved the hardwood floors, back porch and large patio area. The kitchen was well stocked and bathroom bright with plenty of storage and counter space. The only downside was the yard which needed a little TLC. The location was perfect for us, walking distance to many eateries, shops, the library, senior center. The best part of our stay was meeting Beth and Terry who were in town. They couldn't have been nicer and more helpful and generous. They really made us feel at home and comfortable. This is the third time we've rented properties from Splashy Ventures and have always been happy with the rentals. Thank you Beth and Terry for making our stay enjoyable. I highly recommend Tyn & Marty's and Flamingo Cottage, another property we've rented in the past.

We absolutely loved it! This is the perfect house & location for me & my 2 children. (as I don't like touristy areas) it's nice to have food & activities w/in walking distance. We also got a temp. library card to check out books & dvds. Everyone was very helpful! Would love to purchase this house to live in!

The cottage is not only the perfect size, but is close enough to downtown to walk. The amenities are immaculate and the space is very beautifully decorated. I would recommend this location to anyone staying in the Gulfport area.

We had a good stay at Tyn & Marty's. The cottage is clean and functional. We stay in Gulfport often visiting our son, and are getting to know the area quite well. It is an easy walk from Tyn and Marty's to Gulfport's shops, restaurants, and waterfront, and it is always a pleasure to walk the quiet neighbor hood streets. Be sure to eat at Pia's and Isabel's in the Peninsula Hotel and have breakfast at Stella's. Neptune is an excellent regular go-to spot for an inexpensive meal, and Trivia night at Spinnaker's is fun.<br/><br/>If you do nothing else, stay at a Splashy Ventures property. Beth and her staff are friendly, responsive and always feel close by.

We found Gulfport to be a very friendly community. The home was conveniently located within walking distance of the downtown area, the water & restaurants. The Tuesday market was great. The home was not as clean as I would have liked. The first time I changed the sheets, there were short, dark dog hairs all over the mattress pad making it necessary to wash it. The day before we were to leave I discovered sewer water from the home coming out across the back yard. I notified maintenance & hope they fixed it before the next renter. For renters staying more than a week they should invest in better mattresses.

Nice, clean and simple old-fashion cape cottage within walking distance to the waterfront area, shops and restaurants. Pleasant area. Easy access by car to St Pete's Beach and downtown St Petersburg. Could use some updating in the kitchen but otherwise quiet and comfortable. Managers were pleasant, attentive and responsive. I would/may rent it again.

We stayed in multiple locations in the Gulfport area while our condo was being renovated and the thing that really stands out for this stay was the location. We were within walking distance of everything the Gulfport Waterfront District has to offer! My wife and I would definately recommend any of the Gulfport Splashy Venture properties. They have an awesome formula and each location was consistently equipped with everything you need. You will not be disappointed.

We moved our daughter to Eckerd for her freshman year. We chose a house over a hotel because it gave us a chance to unwind comfortable for less money. It was close to shops, restaurants, and the beach. It was a good choice and a nice area to stay.

Cute and very clean house. Beth, the owner, was very friendly and replied quickly and professionally. The cottage is so convenient to everything in the area and just the right size for our long weekend getaway. Short walk to all the waterfront restaurants. New fenced-in area out back was a very welcome surprise since we had our pups with us. The house and kitchen were stocked with everything you might need! I highly recommend this cottage and owner!

The overall stay was outstanding...the location could not have been better...within walking distance to the public library, the shops in downtown Gulfport and the beach. The cottage itself was clean and had ample supplies as well as towels, wash cloths, etc. The bed was very comfortable. The TV in the living room was great.<br/>There was no need to contact management since everything was explained very well in the instructions left...especially how to connect to WiFi when it goes out.<br/>The one suggestion I would make is to have a hand bar installed in the shower.

The house was really cozy, had everything we could have needed. Particularily loved the porch and outside area. The women at the property management office was our only negative. We were having trouble with the TV, and her helpful answer was "have you turned it on?" Really ??????

I want especially to note with praise Elizabeth Sexworth's attention to detail and her persistence in correcting a couple of little glitches. We would have done fine without, but she made it a point to address the issues successfully.
